Enter to have your hat on display for a full year in the Kentucky Derby Museum's signature exhibit, It's My Derby

The Kentucky Derby Museum invites both professionals and amateurs to enter their hats for inclusion in the 2018 “It’s My Derby” fashion exhibit. The hat contest is a signature element of the exhibition which strives to capture the spirit associated with the landmark sport and cultural event that is the Kentucky Derby.

All hat entries will be judged by an expert panel where 20-25 hats will be selected for display in the Museum exhibit for one year. There will be a ‘Judges’ Choice’ Award for best overall entry and a ‘Most Representative of Derby’ Award, presented to the hat that best captures the essence of the Kentucky Derby, plus an ‘Employees’ Choice’ Award.
